There were 3 other Airstream's in our RV park in Port Townsend, WA this weekend. The weather was windy and rainy (but not as bad as in the Seattle area) so I only talked to the nice people in a 30' Classic parked next to us. They are full timer's heading to Arizona, which sounds so tempting, we are back home now and expecting record rains and wind tonight!

Know where there is an Avion "wide body" just out of West Branch Iowa in the weeds. We still have our 68 Tradewind for sale. Husband just not into finishing the project. Sad!!!! Took it to New Brunswick, Canada in June. I had a blast...no so much fun for him. But at least it is not in the "Weeds." Still caring for it until a sale!

Pulled into a rest stop behind this 2005 last week. Pardon our work in progress. Hoping to remove the makeshift awning rail to put a real awning on after a season of workamping for Amazon!

OK, Lou, I gotta hear the explanation for that one. I know what workamping is, but what is workamping for Amazon?

Jim,

Amazon hires seasonal campers for the peak season, September - December to hit their labor requirements. Currently they do this at 3 of their fulfillment centers. In addition to pay, they cover the cost of a full hookup campsite for the duration of your employment. Amazon calls the program "Camperforce."

I am working until December 23rd at Campbellsville, Kentucky while my wife tends to the housekeeping on the Airstream. Not a bad way to augment the gasoline budget!

We were camping at Greys Homestead campground in Southport, ME this weekend along with two other airstreams. The safari seemed to be unoccupied the entire weekend.

Now that's pertty dern kool! Just the kind of innovative thinking one might expect from Amazon. Everybody wins--the company, their customers and the seasonal employees. Cool. Hope they're still doing it in about 7 years......I may have to sign up.
